Chelsea, having booked a place in the FA Cup final with a win over title rivals Tottenham on Saturday, have the chance to move seven points clear of Spurs if they can claim all three points from the visit of Southampton on Tuesday. Should the Saints cause an upset at Stamford Bridge they would move to within a point of West Brom, ninth.

It’s getting to the last chance saloon for Arsenal and a bid to finish in the top-four – nothing short of three points from visiting Leicester on Wednesday will be enough for the Gunners, seventh, if these slim chances are to stay alive. The Foxes have only been beaten once in the last seven but sit just six points clear of the bottom-three in 15th.

Having won just four games all season Middlesbrough, second-bottom, are near certainties to drop out of the Premier League even if they win all five games they have left. It could be worse as Boro could be in Sunderland’s position – three points worse off at the foot of the table, 12 from safety but with a game more to play.

Crystal Palace should be safe now with a victory over title-chasing Tottenham pretty much doing it – Palace could move as high as ninth. However, Spurs will aim to react to the disappointment of Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final defeat to Chelsea with a victory to keep them in contention to be crowned champions.

Thursday’s Manchester derby could be the decisive meeting between Manchester City and Manchester United in the battle to finish in the top-four. A City win an they’ll move above Liverpool into third whereas United – who can’t really afford to lose – would leapfrog their rivals and could also move above the Reds going from fifth as high as third.

It goes without saying the expectation; most definitely the hope at least, will be for a positive result. But will this happen? We’ll find out soon enough.
